FortisBC holds open houses on energy efficiency

Sessions will be held in Oliver and Osoyoos on Tuesday, June 18

FortisBC will host open houses in Oliver and Osoyoos to help customers in less energy-efficient homes.

The forums will be held on Tuesday, June 18 and will include information about Fortis’s no-cost programs for everything from energy-efficient light bulbs and weatherstripping to new energy-efficient refrigerators and high-efficiency natural gas furnaces.

“The most affordable homes to rent or buy can also be the least affordable to heat, and we know that energy-efficiency issues like this are an additional burden for our customers on the tightest budgets,” said Ned Georgy, manager, conservation and energy management, FortisBC.

One of the programs is FortisBC’s Energy Conservation Assistance Program, which provides eligible participants with a customized home energy evaluation and the installation of energy-saving products.

Last year, FortisBC performed more than 2,000 energy evaluations and installed more than 7,000 energy saving products through this program.

The sessions on June 18 will be at the Sonora Community Centre, 8505 68th Ave., Osoyoos from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and at the Town of Oliver Library, 6329 Station St. from 2 to 5 p.m.
